McNellie’s has become a Tulsa classic. It’s a favorite place to go any time of day, including late nights. McNellie’s Downtown is open until 11 p.m. Sundays through Tuesdays, until 1 a.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, and until 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Pulled pork nachos or garlic parmesan fries are great for sharing. If you’re ravenous, try the patty melt or steak and fries with gorgonzola butter.

The buzz about Nola’s hasn’t died down since it opened earlier this year. Nola’s is open until 2 a.m. every night, and is just a few miles from downtown, making it a great spot to meet for drinks or dinner after a show. The menu here is big, but you can’t go wrong with any of the Cajun flavors. So choose a favorite — maybe the shrimp and cheese grits or red beans and rice. Save room for Nola’s bread pudding with spiced rum sauce or the classic bananas Foster.

Open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, Andolini’s Sliced is a fun place to stop for pizza by the slice. Fried artichokes or a charcuterie and cheese plate are great for sharing when you’re with a big group. Don’t miss the gelato, which comes in flavors like cannoli, lemon biscotti and orange chocolate.
